CREEPING DANGER

In 1937, Carl H. Claudy published a story called “Creeping Danger” in a popular magazine called American Boy magazine. In 2018, Rish Outfield discovered a copy of American Boy magazine in an old trunk in a shed called the Tin Garage, and decided that story would make an interesting episode of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. So, here it is, a reading of a historical pulp science fiction story from the thirties. Hope you enjoy!

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for lending his voice to this production.

Oh, here’s that picture of the fly attacking the cowboy that Rish mentioned as well. Check it out if you like:
